Default 16 JKU factory build order. Faith and Freedom edition.

I've been selling and building Jeeps for customers for too long. Time to put myself into one. I can't stand how expensive they are until you go to sell it and get the money back. So I decided to build it as I wanted it, trim the fat off the price in department A and B, but include stuff I want in department C and D. I kept the power window and locks out of it, but got the 3.73 gears and traclok and such.

Attached is the build slip and then some parts that I buy in prep as its being assembled. Will post pics as it arrives and the changes I make. This will be a DD Jeep. I have had a lot of fun thinking it through and test driving different vehicle and messing with different equipment packages and settling into the final order.

285/75/17 Coopers on rubi wheels. I figure they probably won't rub. Will know in June when I put them on :)

White is my color. Will be doing some black graphics on body with body color coming through the cut outs. Anyone want my factory hardtop? Considering the bestop hybrid top to replace it.

It is just a film to protect it during assembly. Same with other plastic items. I kept all paperwork in it from the build. I pulled the "Sport" stickers off two minutes after it landed :)
